First I have to say the staff was very nice and customer service driven. Our reservations at another facility were not available, so we were in Grand Lake and needed a place to stay. We called the Rapids Lodge and they were very accommodating and helpful. The front desk person met us in the room with ice and turned on... More

I recently spent 2 nights here while hiking in the Grand Lake area of Rocky Mountain National Park. I was originally assigned to room 1A in the Rapids Condos building, which I found to be totally inadequate. This was not the hotel's fault, but rather the fault of our small group trip coordinator. Our paid guide, who had one of... More

Late review from June This is an objective review based on a 5 week touring holiday. I stayed twice, each for two nights, so that perhaps tells a tale in itself. As they say, location, location, location - as many others have reviewed, right on the banks of the river - which during my stay was in full snow melt... More

We stayed in the condos; 5B worked well for 3 adult siblings - two of us in separate bedrooms and one on the pullout couch. Kitchen has everything you need to eat in, if you so choose. Location is great, in that you can easily walk to the main downtown area. Location is also super close to some nice hiking... More

My husband and I were in Grand Lake for a wedding and stayed at the Rapids Lodge for three nights. We arrived quite late (8:30 pm) as it was a very long drive from Denver. As the reservation desk was closed, our key was in an envelope addressed to us by name and left stuck in the front door. We... More

We stayed in suite 4, off from the main lodge, found it clean & comfy with a nice little kitchenette. Seemed to be recently remodeled. All the utensils one would need. Beautiful setting, we had eaten in their dinning room (great food but pricey) past visits, first time staying here. Great location near a fast running river with benches and... More

We stayed in 4A Condo on the parking lot side without the river view which saved us about $25 per night. We could still hear the river and enjoyed the natural white noise as we were dozing off. We didn't miss enjoying the river since we took time to sit on a provided bench right next to the river sipping... More

We stayed in the crow's nest: 2 rooms with kitchen, dining area, and living room in between. Clean, quiet, right by the rapids, close to town. Great value. Decor is eclectic garage sale and floors slope a bit (but are sturdy) . Overall, fun and a good buy!

We stayed in Rapids Lodge Guest Room #1 “Tonahutu”. I consider this one of the best rooms at the lodge. The window that overlooks the rapids is great. Lots of room, good bed and chaise lounge. Remember, this is an old lodge, so the claw foot bath may not be to everyone's taste. Particularly if you are desiring a shower.... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Rapids Lodge Condos. We were in Unit 1B right on the river. We absolutely loved our condo. It was HUGE for 2 people. Big living room with a pull-out couch and a comfy murphy bed. Big dining room table and a kitchen with a regular sized fridge. I suppose I should preface by... More
